Verden Auction Online - Sport horses and young stallions

Final Countdown in Verden. Price top Frido sold for 56.000 Euro to Spain.

For the fifth and last time this year, riding horses could be bought online at the Verden Auction on November 20th. Of the 41 horses offered, all were online sold. 24 will stay in Germany, 17 will travel to eight countries. Bidders from Spain and France acquired the most horses with four purchases each. The top priced horse was Frido, who was auctioned off for 56,000 Euros.


Regular customers from Spain secured the top price of the auction: a brown gelding named Frido by Finest/Spörken (breeder: Julia and Dr. Arndt-Friedrich Echte, Hameln, exhibitor: Monika Decke, Balge). During the one-week bidding period on the internet as well during the twelve-day training in Verden, the interest in the gelding became apparent. The most expensive show jumper was sold online shortly before the end of the November auction: Quality Top by Qualito/Grey Top cost 46,000 Euros and will stay in Germany. The mare was bred and sold by Werner Rückgauer from Krautheim. 


The average price improved by a good 5,000 Euros to 21,634 Euros compared to the previous year. This is a new record for the Verden auction in November. Twelve horses were sold at 25,000 Euros and more, another 17 achieved prices of 15,000 Euros and better.


The riding horses were complemented by twelve two-and-a-half-year old jumping stallions. These young sport aspirants cost an average of 12,000 Euros. Two of them will leave Germany and go to Poland or Austria. The statistics are led by a clear margin by another Qualito offspring: Question of Honour by Qualito/Acorado (breeder and exhibitor: Martin Klintworth, Ohrensen) found a new owner for 17,500 Euros. A renowned trainer from near Verden bought the bay stallion for an American hunter and show jumper stable.
